Add a point and line layers
Select the line layer
In the locator bar, type "ef ". You get the list of edit-in-place algorithms.
Switch to the other layer
and move back to the locator bar where the "ef " should still be visible
The list of algs is again shown. Among them, you'll see the "Array of offset (parallel) lines" algorithm that you can open (and run? I did not go that further) despite it's incompatible with the point geometry type.
Given that the algs are tied to the active layer, I think the list should be updated when clicking back to the widget.
note that you get an updated list if you remove the space at the end.
